The Creator, The Philosophy, & The Name
I help people find meaning in their work. Not long after they start working with me, the wheels begin to turn and life begins to change concretely. Opportunities arise. People start feeling great about their work life...and life in general!
DESEEDE is the fruit of my life so far: living in different countries (USA, Venezuela, Brazil, France, Israel), learning different languages (Spanish, French, Portuguese, Hebrew), doing intercultural training, teaching languages, and above all, not knowing what to be when I grew up. I've experienced the frustration of not knowing what to do with my 'potential'.
Unsurprisingly, it's a method that contains all of me:
- Teacher: a simple format of consecutive exercises, workbook-style
-Language Learner: Each exercise is carefully worded to provoke a certain type of response
- Interculturalist: Explores each person's perfectly coherent system of beliefs and values
Simple. Straightforward. Efficient. And FUN!
Consider me a recipe developer for happiness that helps others find theirs.
I believe . . .
That being yourself is the best way to meet your goals.
That your uniqueness is nothing less than your competitive advantage. Use it!
That happiness at work and money are not mutually exclusive. You can, and should, have both!
That when you follow that thing that makes you buzz...magic happens. Opportunities come, and life just falls into place.
That a person...is like a handmade object. Each one is different. Every person possesses a unique creative spirit that makes him/her a work of art.
- Dr. Maria Montessori
The Story Behind the Name
A person is like a pomegranate: the outside provides little information regarding the treasure inside.
My job is to to de-seed: remove the seeds, patiently uncovering the treasure within, so the seeds can be planted and nurtured...and that one day, will give fruits of their own.
Because of its numerous seeds, the pomegranate is a symbol of abundance and fertility since time immemorial, for many societies. This is the abundance and growth I wish for my clients.
The name DESEEDE resonates with me especially because:
